Luxembourg among the 16 countries recognized by CTA as Innovation Champions

Published Monday May 06 2019

The Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the trade association representing the American consumer technology industry, recognized Luxembourg in its International Innovation Scorecard for 2019 as one of the 16 countries that are leading the world in having the best environment for innovation. This year’s Innovation Champions are Australia, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Israel, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. The International Innovation Scorecard grades 61 countries and the European Union across 14 categories including whether governments welcome disruptive technologies, their tax systems, quality of environment, and broadband speed and cost. The Scorecard also looks at issues like diversity, the ratio of female-to-male employees in the workplace, immigrants as a share of the national population, and freedom of thought and expression. 

On 30 April, at the CTA’s annual Digital Patriots dinner at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, the 16 Innovation Champions were recognized alongside the two Digital Patriots Honorees of 2019, Congressman Greg Walden of Oregon and Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy of Florida, who were honored for their efforts in Congress to champion legislation to foster innovation.
